Today is the first day of February, the 2nd month of the year or as I like to say the month of LOVE. February is one of my most favorite months of the year! I have had a lot of life changing things happen to me in February. I married my best friend, the love of my life in February and I am so lucky to be doing life with him. He is my rock, the one that would do anything for me and my one true love and the one I am so glad I get to spend the rest of my life with. We have so much fun together and we really don’t go and do anything we love to just be at home! Lol We laugh a lot and he laughs at me a lot. As my mom always says you cannot get through this life without a sense of humor!! And when he sits with you every night for the past 2-3 weeks and watches every single episode of When Calls the Heart on Netflix you know he is a keeper! 😊 In February I received one of the greatest gifts ever as my son was born. There is nothing like becoming a mom as it changes your life forever. He will forever be my little boy and so glad that God made me his mom. February has also brought some sadness as my grandmother past away at the age of 92. She was one of a kind and what I wouldn’t give to eat a home-cooked meal in her kitchen again! So, you see love comes in all aspects of your life whether it is getting married, or having a child, or losing a loved one. Love is what makes the world go around.
One of my favorite kinds of love is the unconditional love. Dogs love in a way that is unconditional and without limitations. As humans we could learn so much from our dogs if we could just take the time. I know since God has taken me down this path that I am on that I have learned so many lessons from our dogs we have boarded. Did you know that dogs make great listeners? No matter how bad a day I have had or if I just don’t feel good a dog is always there to listen and they comfort you with those big eyes, nose nudges, sloppy wet kisses or just sitting beside you while you pet them. Did you know that dogs always see the best in you? Maybe you had a rough day at work or school. You didn’t do good on a test or you made a mistake at work and you think your life is not going the way you want it to. Your dog still thinks you can do anything! They see us at our very worst and still think we are worth a million dollars! Did you know that dogs never hold a grudge? I witness this every time I walk in my door. Whether I have been gone for 5 minutes or all day my dogs are always happy to see me, and I also see it when our customers come pick up their dog after they have boarded with us, they are so glad to see their owners and nothing could make me happier! Did you know that a dog’s affection is unwavering? Even though they may not be here with us long, dogs love us with their whole heart. Our dogs love us more than they love themselves, and that is something that we can all learn a lesson from.
I hope your February brings you much love and happiness and I just want to thank you all for letting me love on your dogs and for letting your dog’s love on me! I truly do love each one of them!
1 Corinthians 13:13- And now these three things remain: Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is Love.
Spring is just around the corner! I hope you will remember us when making those vacation plans!
Hope to see you in the country!
